Frequently Asked Questions
What the hell is this crap?
It’s a semi-autobiographical daily journal comic about my life.
Life happens, comics ensue.
Sometimes Jesus and The Devil show up.
What’s with your spelling?
I have dyslexia. It takes me a while to learn things and when I finally do I tend to get them mixed up. So English spelling, being chock full of IF/UNLESS/SOMETIMES/BUTNOTALWAYS bullshit, is basically my fucking kryptonite.
When I first started the comic I was working two jobs and struggling to find a decent place to live. I barely managed to even get the comics done on time. As things got better for me I spent more time spell checking and using a dictionary. For the print books I actually got an editor to go through them all.
Eventually I got an editor for the daily strips.
I do apologize for the errors in the earlier strips, and sometimes I want to go back and edit all the web versions of the comics, but I like to keep them as a reminder to myself of how far I’ve come.
tl;dr I’m dyslexic, I got better about it.
Where did you get your boots?
My Mommy got them for me. They’re New Rocks.
Where did the title come from?
I had a list of titles for the comic. I asked friends what I should nameÂ it. My friend DJ had a title she was doing to use for her band (she doesnâ€™tÂ play an instrument, but just in case she was ever in a band she had a nameÂ picked out). â€œThe Devilâ€™s Pantiesâ€. I wanted to call it â€œReality’sÂ Victimâ€ but everyone who heard â€œThe Devilâ€™s Pantiesâ€ wouldÂ stop and say â€œI donâ€™t know what that is but I want to find outâ€.Â Only years later did I find out that it was taken from â€œMiss Congenialityâ€.
â€œI wanted to get the red undies but my mother said that they were theÂ Satans Panties!â€
How much of the comic is taken from real life?
Pretty much all of it. Obviously Iâ€™m not necessarily on first name basisÂ with Jesus or Satan but other than that I wrote everything else down as itÂ happened. I carry a recorder around with me and when something happens andÂ everyone laughs I click it on and say â€œdo that again!â€
What do you use to draw your comic?
The older comics were penciled and inked then scanned with minor cleanup occurring on the computer. The newer comics (2010+) Are pencilled, scanned and inked with a Wacom Intous tablet.

How do I host a Webcomic?
Read this article. It’s a bit long but the idea is that you want to avoid getting your hands dirty when it comes to hosting.
tl;dr Buy your domain, put it on Tumblr.
You’re Awesome, but I’m Le Poor, how do I support you!?
At its core, this comic is a free thing on the web. If you like it, share it with a friend (or don’t). Not the best business plan (see above) but I don’t really expect anything back from doing what I love except my own endorphins.
